“…one of modern bluegrass’s most compelling musicians…Michael Cleveland’s new album, Lovin’ of The Game, is an ecstatic document of what the fiddle has meant to his story – and what he hopes to mean to its history.”
Grayson Haver Currin, New York Times (2/28/23)

Lovin’ of the Game showcases Cleveland’s astonishing artistry, and his ability to dwell in songs and tunes so deeply that he turns them inside out, transcending musical styles and gliding between them effortlessly.
Henry Carrigan, Folk Alley (3/9/23)

“Cleveland has made quite the name for himself as arguably the greatest bluegrass fiddle player for this generation, but with this upcoming album Lovin’ of The Game, the fiddler is ready to reach a whole new level.
Whiskey Riff

“Michael Cleveland continues to be a significant part of the resurgent swell we’ve seen in the popularity of bluegrass over the last few years. Both as a solo artist and as a collaborator, he’s brought such authority and passion to the fiddle discipline, it’s infectious with the audience.”
Saving Country Music

“With Lovin’ of the Game, Cleveland emerges as a standout tunesmith. While his violin fireworks remain as breathtaking as ever on his sixth solo album… it’s Cleveland’s tastefulness that sets this new material apart the most. Throughout Lovin’ of the Game, Cleveland and fellow producers Sean Sullivan and Jeff White manage to capture full-throttle uptempo bluegrass in such a way that the music comforts as much as it invigorates. Above all, though, Lovin’ of the Game showcases Cleveland as the consummate team player.”
